The Nordic Fenno-Fascist Empire of Atsuria is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Lord-President Markus Sarasti-Varis with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical, humorless, devout population of 15.243 billion Fascist Atsurians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grand-City Kalevala. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Atsurian economy, worth a remarkable 1,723 trillion Gold Standard Imperial Fennomarks a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 113,063 Gold Standard Imperial Fennomarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, the nation has always been at war with Bigtopia, immigrants are required to salute the flag five times a day, and mandatory updates on software drivers often bring life to a halt. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Atsuria's national animal is the White Lynx Viri Septentrionalis, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is National-Evangelist Lutheranism.

Atsuria is ranked 203,260th in the world and 33rd in Fifth Empire for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -21.69 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
